## Bayesian interpretation of confidence intervals is fine

Most method people agree that most researchers are bad at statistics, naturally. A typical paper to show this is: Lyu, X. K., Xu, Y., Zhao, X. F., Zuo, X. N.,…

Pearl, J., & Mackenzie, D. (2018). The book of why: the new science of cause and effect. Basic Books. This is an interesting but annoying book. The basic pattern of…

A fellow emailed me asking for help on what to start reading to learn psychology and stats. The replication crisis means that most older psychology introductions should be viewed with…

There's a certain type of person that doesn't produce any empirical contribution to "Reducing the heredity-environment uncertainty". Instead, they contribute various theoretical arguments which they take to undermine the empirical…

Humans love interactions, they tell interesting stories (however, no study has investigated this bias, AFAIK). However, statistics and nature hate interactions. Interactions in general have low prior, and because people…

Jensen spent decades trying to convince people that the g factor (general intelligence) is the primary reason why IQ tests predict stuff, not whatever mental abilities the tests appear to…

Just a minor stats point for an otherwise excellent paper. Woodley of Menie, M. A. & Fernandes, H. B., & Hopkins, W. D. (2015). The more g-loaded, the more heritable,…

Science is a set of related methods that aim at finding true patterns about the world. These methods are generally designed so as to remove noise from random circumstances (the…

Someone on Reddit for SlateStarCodex: AFAIK, SATs are normed to mean of 500 per section and standard deviation of 100. Assuming that math and verbal are highly correlated, that approximates…
